"WWE thanks the city of New Orleans and the Saints for welcoming our biggest celebration of the year for the first time to The Big Easy," said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman and CEO.  "We can't think of a better city or a more legendary venue than the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to host the 30th annual WrestleMania.  Let the good times roll."
